Very nice bro.

I'm hoping to get to see a game next time I'm over visiting family. The train ride is roughly five hours and it will drop me off very close to El Santiago Bernabeu, so why not? :)

Anyways, looks like Levante will not play us this weekend. The players have decided to forfeit the game as they have not been receiving their wages for some time now. Awful situation and I hope all is sorted out very soon as it is only fair to their families.

100 million we'll decline that and the player has mentioend he is happy at united on so many ocassions. No disrespect to you lot, but i hate the mentality and just the plain idea behind a club president that holds so many promises and ideas if and when the ge elected, football in the 21st century is becoming more and more into a business and these kind of conventions are quite passe.

Well it looks like Ron is playing the Game.....

Ron reveals Real admiration
Portuguese content at United, curious about Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo has spoken of his admiration for Real Madrid in a candid interview that will alert the Spanish giants and alarm Sir Alex Ferguson.

Madrid have made no secret of their admiration for the PFA and Football Writers' Player of the Year and it would appear the feeling is reciprocated - with Ronaldo refusing to rule out playing in Spain in the future.

A wonderful campaign for the Portuguese has seen Manchester United retain the Premier League title, while they could make it a double on Wednesday evening should they see off Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League final in Moscow.

It was only earlier in the week that Ronaldo moved to play down speculation over a switch to Madrid, with the 23-year-old keen to reaffirm his commitment to Old Trafford.

Madrid have consistently voiced their interest and reports have suggested they would be prepared to part with in the region of £100million.

Ronaldo admits he will weigh up his future after the Moscow showpiece, having conceded his love of Spanish football.

Committed but curious

"It is always important that other teams like you, it gives you motivation. The other teams say your name all the time, say they will give you this - it is good," Ronaldo told Sky Sports News, when quizzed on Madrid's interest.

"I have said 1,000 times, I am very happy here. I want to stay in Manchester. This is my role but the future - nobody knows. Only God knows.

"I have said 10,000 times I have a dream to play in Spain, but sometimes dreams do not come true. I still dream, I still dream.

"I am happy at Manchester United, but the future? You never know.

When pushed on whether he could guarantee United supporters that he will be in Manchester next season, Ronaldo offered: "I am happy here, but the future - who knows?"

I would rather we use the money more wisely and I think he would be stupid to leave Man Utd where he is developing all the time.

Ronaldo 9 - The Greatest
C.Ronaldo's ego will burst the already inflated dressing room of ours. I'd rather see a Robinho-Robben partnership more than a Cristiano-show anyday.

Are we prepared to win the champion's league for the tenth time?

Get passed the last 16 first, then we'll see.

i find it weird how the best interest of the football team (in terms of transfer targets) isnt placed in the hands of the manager.

If Real Madrid were to pay that ammount or near it then it's a complete joke and waste of money, Personally Messi is better, he can cope with the big big matches and play better. Ronaldo, can play well in those matches but not as good as Messi, although Ronaldo for Portugal is class. I'm sure Real Madrid could get 5/6 class players that would benefit the team more than one, player who hasn't fully developed.

Look at Ronaldihno two seasons ago he was estimated to be bought for 50 million two season on what's his price not even half that. Suppose age is a matter though but still.

Because Real is a Business and in a business the interests of the business are decided by the shareholders and CEO's while the manager just takes the orders.

Real Madrid, Barcelona (business)

Arsenal, Man Utd, Liverpool (Football Clubs)

So you wouldn't say any of those Premiership teams are run like a business?

Those english clubs are football clubs that are run like a business's.

Real and Barca are Business's that are football clubs..

Wenger and Fergie especially get a huge say what goes on at the clubs and are not puppets on strings.

I think i've saw Laporta and Calerdon more than i've saw Peter Hillwood in my life as an Arsenal supporter!!!

I think you'll find that both Real and Barça are both football clubs that have presidents which get elected by a board not brought by businessmen who buy a share in the club.

Difference is they employ coaches over here not managers so yes you're right they have very little say in who comes in and out of the club but they still do have a say, be it minimal.

Nice finale to another championship-winning season.

Looked to be a thrasing at 3-0 but credit to Levante who played the match, took it to Real and came back with two goals. Fitting to see Sneijder finish the season scoring free kick, just as he started it. Codina made three brilliant stops on his debut. Guti with some extraordinary through passes. Raul invisible for most parts. Robinho quite wasteful. Van Nistelrooy looked very sharp, would've got a hat-trick if not for several offside calls. Sneijder good game, involved in three goals through set pieces. Robben and Higuain couldn't really get into the match after coming on. Nice to see Metzelder though.

For me, this match shows why Sergio Ramos is the best right-back in the world. Two headed goals and two assists for van Nistelrooy. Looks a right winger everytime Real come forward, just how many miles has he clocked up today ;)

Pepe performed well above expectations for someone the fans thought would be a 30mil flop. Heinze, not a bad buy. Sneijder and Robben, good captures. Not sure about Drenthe, Saviola and Dudek though. Metzelder will probably remain at least next season to see how he performs on a regular basis. The trio of January 2007 signings improved much too, Gago, Marcelo and Higuain.

Probably goodbyes for Salgado, Saviola, Dudek and Soldado now. It'll be interesting to be who gets brought in. Villa or Huntelaar will do perfectly :)

Real confirm Garay deal
Argentine joins Real from Racing Santander

Real Madrid have completed the signing of Ezequiel Garay from Racing Santander.

The highly-rated Argentine was linked with a number of other clubs including Barcelona but Real have won the chase.

The 21-year-old centre-back may remain on loan at Racing for another season but Real president Ramon Calderon has confirmed reports of a deal.

"We've signed Garay," Calderon told reporters during Real's celebrations of their 31st league title.

"I don't know if he will come to the club this season or next, but we have signed a contract.

"He is a young player and the signing is proof of our desire to create a young, committed team full of enthusiasm and ambition."

Garay, who is recovering from a knee injury, is reported to have cost Real in the region of 10million euros (£8million).

He truly is.

How many times must Ronaldo and United come out and say that he's not going anywhere for this fool to cease claiming that he'll sign him?

No wonder they're asking for his resignation.
